What God gives in answer to our prayers will always be the thing we most urgently need, and it will always be suffient.
Elisabeth Elliot

I am reading the autobiography of Hudson Taylor and just finished his coversion story which was utterly drenched in the prayer of his mother, which you can read here. It is not long but it is powerful in the realization of the true POWER of prayer!

1 John 5:15
And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of him.

Today: Worship Him with all of your heart, mind, soul, and strength... and at some point retreat to a quiet place and get on your knees and pray with belief in His power to move the mountains in your life and those around you.

We read a biography of Hudson Taylor last year for school. It didn't talk about his mother (I wish it had!) but we found ourselves amazed at his faith. We found it very challenging and encouraging. Thanks for the link!

Lori- Oh, wasn't his faith so encouraging. His mother was really a wonderful testimony to the power of prayer and it really encouraged me especially as a mother.
